Add Void’s Ten from 2010 #6

So it seems we’re slightly stuck in the past. 2010 is rapidly speeding into the distance and we’ve admittedly been a little slow in outing all of our favourite tracks from the year that’s passed.

As far as we’re concerned though, that’s no reason to stop looking back. At least three of the songs on this mix have come to our attention in the short window January has so far afforded, some from as far back as February last year, and I’m sure we’ll discover more as the year continues.

The selection of ambience and drone we’ve put together shows that 2010 was a year in which the marginal seemed to come to the fore. Emeralds and Oneohtrix featured in many a ‘best of’ list and they’re firmly nestled in ours alongside some less heralded favourites. This has been the hardest mix to finalise a track list for, with songs from Concern, The Fun Years, Barn Owl, Philip Jeck and Yellow Swans all just missing out. Still, there should be enough here to hold you interest for an hour or so. Click here to get the tracklisting and download the mix for free.
